Oh, Susannah – Lyrics – Text

I had a dream the other night
When everything was still
I thought I saw Susanna
A-coming down the hill

The buckwheat cake
Was in her mouth
The tear was
In her eye
Says I, I’m coming from the south
Susanna, don’t you cry

Oh, Susannah,
Oh don’t you cry for me
For I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee
